Student Testimonials 

“A negotiation is really about conflict resolution; there isn’t a winning or losing side. Through a negotiation we try to figure out how to solve problems in a way that both side are satisfied, we try to solve problems in peaceful ways.”

“This is a concept that is very closely associated with the political world but is relevant to everyone. It happens everywhere and at any time.”

“I thought it’s a perfect chance to train and improve my speaking skills in English”.
